What is PBIS?
PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) is a school-wide approach to make schools safe and promote positive behavior.
We have identified some areas in our school and created posters to help remind student of how their behavior should look in these areas.
At MRS we believe that students learn positive behaviors just like they learn math, science and all the other subjects we expect them to master. PBIS is a system that helps students identify and show positive behaviors in areas of our school outside of the classroom. Drop by the school and visit with the teachers and staff about PBIS and how we are helping our students become the best they can be.
We are targeting the Hallway. Please click on the poster to enlarge it and to see the behaviors we would like the students to emulate.
Please ask your children what Respect, Responsibility and Cooperation mean at Meade River School.
You can help support PBIS at Meade River School!
